Taut and terrifying, Snowblind is a startling debut from Ragnar Jonasson, an extraordinary new talent.

Where: An isolated fishing village in the fjords of northern Iceland, where no one locks their doors.

Who: Ari Thór is a rookie policeman on his first posting, far from his girlfriend in Reykjavík.

What: A young woman is found lying half naked in the snow, bleeding and unconscious, and a highly esteemed elderly writer falls to his death. Ari is dragged straight into the heart of a community where he can trust no one, and secrets and lies are a way of life.

*BONUS CONTENT: This edition of Snowblind includes a new introduction from the author and a discussion guide

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"A classic crime story . . .first-rate and highly recommended." - Lee Child

"Seductive ... an old-fashioned murder mystery with a strong central character and the fascinating background of a small Icelandic town cut off by snow. Ragnar does claustrophobia beautifully." - Ann Cleeves

"Ragnar Jónasson writes with a chilling, poetic beauty... a must-read." - Peter James

"A modern Icelandic take on an Agatha Christie-style mystery, as twisty as any slalom..." - Ian Rankin

"If a Golden Age crime novel was to emerge from a literary deep freeze then you'd hope it would read like this." - Craig Robertson

"As dazzling a novel as its title implies and the wonderful Ari Thór is a welcome addition to the pantheon of Scandinavian detectives. I can't wait until the sequel!" - William Ryan
